    Default spinoff What factors do you consider when buying groceries

    I am biased, I work for a large FMCG supplier so I try to only buy brands.
    I will buy private label for flour or sugar but that's about it.

    As for priority - taste is no 1 for us.

    Aus made is important but not a mandatory.

    Try to avoid buying products with preservatives, colours or flavours.

    We have just gone down to 1 income with me on mat leave so price I am sure will play a factor but I will try pre plan as much as possible.
    I am happy to pay a bit more for a product / brand I love.

    In no particular order:
    -Price
    -Minimally processed/minimal ingredients
    -In processed, sugar & salt content
    -Local produce and/or local businesses
    -Australian
    -Ethical
    -Taste
    -Freshness
    -Convenience

    I think our top ones would be price, overall healthy diet and local
